The Philippines is Among the Top 10 ‘Riskiest’ Countries to Be in During the COVID-19 Pandemic
According to data analyzed by the Deep Knowledge Group, a consortium built for research and investments, the Philippines is among the top 10 countries with the highest risk levels during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As COVID-19 continues its spread around the world with the number of cases reaching almost one million individuals, some countries are faring better than others.
In Deep Knowledge Group’s graph on the countries with the highest “health safety” rankings, the top 10 countries to stay in during this pandemic are Israel, Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Hungary, Austria, Germany, and South Korea.
In another graph ranking the treatment efficiency in counties around the world, the top 10 nations with the most success at treating COVID-19 patients are Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, Germany, Austria, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates.
But it is the graph listing the top 10 riskiest countries to stay in during the global pandemic where the Philippines makes an appearance. According to the group’s risk levels ranking, the top 10 countries that are the riskiest to stay in right now are the U.S.A., Italy, Indonesia, Spain, Iraq, Iran, the Netherlands, France, U.K., and the Philippines.
The Deep Knowledge Group used data sourced from the World Health Organization, John Hopkins University, King’s College London, and the U.S. Center for Disease Control to come to its findings, which is updated almost every day.
"At this critical point, we should actively use DeepTech and frontier technologies to address the major risks and challenges facing us,” stated co-founder and managing partner of Deep Knowledge Group Margaretta Colangelo in a Forbes article. “We could start by incorporating currently available AI to improve vaccines and treatments to protect humans from infectious diseases.”
